travis mcallister, 22, straight, tattoo artist/(semi-famous)guitarist, local
travis is the rythem guitarist for his band that has already went on a couple world tours, but they were all originally from albany, new york. his band consists of his best friends since he was a little brat, not much has changed. ever since their drummer died they have been on hiatus and have yet to really play as a group together, their songs at least. he is heartbroken that one of his best friends died way before he should have, they were all so close in age and it scared travis so much that it can happen to him too. he doesn't let anyone really see how torn up over jackson he is because he doesn't want to ruin anyone else's mood, he hates making people upset. so whenever the topic comes up he just smiles and tries to just say good memories to let people think he's calm and collected. he loves playing his guitar in serene settings, helps him get lost in the music easier. with the hiatus, though, he needs to make money some how so he has started helping the lead guitarist, gabe, with his tattoo parlor and is a licsensed tattoo artist. when it comes to this category, i see the man not running out of them. he tries his best to get along with everyone, he can be a little off puting with his appearance but his heart is far from scary. he loves to joke around and just be silly. he is a loyal man and would never turn his back on someone he considers a friend, hell he'd even help some total stranger on the street if he can. he drinks and parties so many party friends. he is honest, caring, and protective so any of those traits can go into the friend category. the way to make this category is to just be a jackass to his friends, or to just upset his friends. he is very protective over anyone he cares about and will defend them with all he has. he's been known to get into some fights over his friends, hardly over himself, see he's very selfless. if he knows someone doesn't like him, or he doesn't like someone, he won't care about trying to stay away from them, he'll pass right by them without saying a word, if he's talked to he'll even talk back. so that's all i can pretty much think of for this. after his bad break up with his cheating ex, he would never really cheat. he respects girls, but if one really came onto him he wouldn't exactly blow off sex, he's a man after all. he likes treating women like princesses and thinks that they pretty much are. this all being said, yes he is a big flirt, he loves making girls feel good about themselves. he's not much for one night stands because he hates just being cut off like that.

dante breton, 22, straight, welding teacher, local
dante is the welding teacher at the high school, well technically the vocational part of the high school. he was originally from los angeles, california but when his best friend moved he couldn't help but follow him to make sure he stayed alright. dante is a worry wart when it comes to other people, he always hopes everyone is doing great and if not he'll fight for them to be happy. in the classroom he's a carefree normal guy, he treats his students like adults and the classroom like a regular work enironment. he tells them that they need to pretend they are actually holding a job and that he's their boss. if they get out of line, his type of out of line, he throws random items on his desk at them or just something he's carrying. he doesn't care about cussing since he doesn't have to fully follow the regular school's rules. but he makes sure people are more than careful since, hell, it is welding. dante is a huge people person, if he doesn't have someone to talk to or hang out with 24/7 he can be driven crazy. with his friends he loves just hanging out with them, doesn't matter if it's them coming over for a beer or him joining them at another party to just hang out. dante and his roommate, gavin, love throwing parties and bon fires so the hanging out thing is pretty much settled. he likes everyone around him to have a good time. if dante doesn't like someone he'll do almost everything to avoid them. he doesn't really like confrontation too much, but he will argue with someone he actually cares about. so if that happens he can make enemies out of friends. and, of course, students have their reasons for hating some teachers that doesn't even deserve it so that could help. or just throw ideas at me. dante is a frequent dater, he doesn't really just go out with girls to get in their pants but if it happens he won't complain. he likes dating girls, if he is sure about someone he'll act on it instantly, he's a man that can't wait to be married and have kids. he wants to find the one girl that he knows is for him, until he will continue to date to find her.

valencia marke, 19, straight, tattoo shop secretary, local
val is the little sister of a dead drummer in a semi-famous rock band. she used to look up to her big brother with such admiration and followed him and his friends everywhere, but to her sadness they either mocked her or just avoided her most of the time. the days they actually paid attention to her she loved and cherished. now without him, she moved away from albany, new york to come to casper for college and to just get away, figuring across the damn country was far enough. she started learning how to play guitar for him, she tried drums and couldn't really get the hang of them and she already was, for lack of better terms, a professional at piano/keyboard. she should have started college a full year ago, but when her brother died she just couldn't go and act like nothing happened, so she decided to wait. when the next semester starts she'll be majoring in art and wants to be a comic book illustrator when she graduates, she's been a comic nerd ever since she could understand how to read them. also, in the past year, she had to go to a pshycologist and was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. it means she craves attention and is willing to do anything to get it because she feels she can't really survive without someone noticing her in any way, negative or not. and because of this she's prone to risky behaviors such as sleeping with random people, drinking, and doing drugs without being able to control it. when it comes to friends, val isn't exactly friendly, she speaks her mind whether it's mean or uplifting. she doesn't fully care about how her words affect people, she has never understood how someone could be so upset by a simple saying, even though she is overly sensitive to people's opinions on her because of her bpd. she's a selfish, selfish girl. she only worries about people only if she's known them for years, even then she won't exactly go completely out of her way to help them out. but she does care for people and loves hanging out with friends. with her selfishness and blunt personality it's easy to dislike the girl, she takes it pretty hard though when people dislike her but she doesn't do a damn thing to change it, she'll just act like that person doesn't even exist. she does sleep with many guys, not really caring if she leaves them the next day or not. but when they ditch her she goes through a drastic mental thing where she thinks that she's worthless and tries to be different to get guys to like her, but it always goes back to her original ways. when she dates guys, she thinks they're cheating on her and always prepares herself to be dumped. but she tries her best to act cocky and self assured when she does talk to guys, never lets her nuerotic side show.

anastasia petrova, 20, sraight, college student, local
ana is a very complicated soul. her family, including herself, is from russia where she was born and lived there until she was four when they moved to casper. ever since she could remember, and most likely her mother and father could remember, they have been wealthy. she has never asked for a thing without getting it plus more, her parents practically spoiled her. the thing about anastasia is, though, she did not let it affect her. she values everything she has and knows the meaning of it and that not many people can be as lucky as her. she is the type of girl to go to a foreign country and try to help but really doesn't know how. she is a vegan and an environmentalist, but she refuses to be called a hippie. when it comes to a normal lifestyle, she really doesn't know how to go about it. she has never really had to lift a finger her whole life, and she feels stupid because of it. she is extremely talented and smart but comes off as ditzy because of her lack of "street" knowledge. she is extremelya little o.c.d. just the smallest piece of paper drives her crazy until it's picked up and put where it belongs. she's going to college and is dead set, ever since she was little, to become an attending at a nice hospital. she doesn't have many friends because she doesn't exactly know how to go about being a good friend, she is sweet and doesn't lie but she was told since she was a little girl to never tell the full truth. her father practically beat into her that showing too much emotion is weakness, including crying and being too happy, all if it was highly frowned upon and banned from his house. she was engaged once but it ended up that he had been cheating on her since they first started dating and he was only going to marry her because their parents thought it to be a "solid match." she has never really had fun, not actual fun that is. she always just got used to the idea that winning a tennis tournament, playing her favorite mozart song on the piano, and getting amazing grades was the most fun she could have. she is so well mannered that it is sickening and would never raise her voice to anyone, no matter what the circumstance is.
